Bloggers’ Event: Vichy Normaderm Tri-Active Cleanser
I was invited for the launch of Vichy‘s new 3-in-1 Normaderm Cleanser which took place at a quaint French cafe at Tudor Court.
More pictures of food that we were served:
What we were there for:
The Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Cleanser behaves like a scrub, mask and cleanser all in one. How convenient is that?
Vichy also had repositioned themselves to become the No. 1 Brand on Cleansing and as such had reformulated their cleansers:
What was in our goodie bag:
The new Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel contains a brand new formula that is soap-free, paraben-free and alcohol-free which makes it perfect and less dehydrating for sensitive skins. The new formula is also lighter and less sticky which makes it a breeze to rinse off.
The Normaderm Deep Cleansing and Exfoliating Gel is also soap-free, paraben-free and alcohol-free. It works by unclogging the pores and smoothes skin’s texture while soothing sensitive skin and refining skin texture.
I had already reviewed the Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care here. I prefer this to use on those days when I have active breakouts (time of the month), otherwise it provides insufficient moisture for my dry/normal skin (now that the weather is cold and my skin is suddenly very dehydrated). This is a good moisturizer to keep in your stash for rotation during climate changes/hormonal changes.
Lastly, the STAR PRODUCT of today:
The first 3-in-1 cleanser (cleanser+scrub+mask) for sensitive skin.
1) Cleanser: Thoroughly yet gently eliminates sebum/impurities without drying skin.
2) Scrub: Unclog pores deeply to visibly reduce blackheads/whiteheads and evens out skin, hydrating creamy texture with gentle exfoliating beads
3) Mask: Enriched with 25% natural clay to remove excess sebum to clarify complexion
I couldn’t wait to try it on as a mask!
After 5-10 minutes:
I have always liked the idea of a scrub+cleanser+mask that is heavy-duty enough to rid my skin of impurities + give good exfoliating action but yet has to be mild enough for sensitive skins. It is hard to find a balance between the two and I glad that Vichy has managed to do so. This could also be used daily as a cleanser/scrub! I really like how time-saving this is because the mask dries within 5 minutes so there is no need for me to walk around with a drippy mask that is threatening to slide off my face any moment. Even though this is a clay mask (it contains Kaolin), it applies creamily and spreads easily around the face. I even like to scrub it around during removal so as to further enhance the exfoliation. It rinses well and removes easily but tends to dry out my skin. It is necessary for me to use a moisturizer after that. Is it worth purchasing? A definite yes because it cleanses and exfoliates well despite being mild and gentle. I will probably not use this in the mornings because it is drying (and I usually wake up to EXTREMELY PARCHED skin).
